The Europeans beat African side Morocco 2-1 in the match to claim third place in the World Cup.
Josko Gvardiol opened the scoring before Achraf Dari equalised for Morocco. But Mislav Orsic netted the winner in the 42nd minute to give his side the victory.
But Infantino took the attention of the fans with his trainers, which had “FIFA” printed on the side of them.
And fans could not help but poke fun at him on social media as one said: “Infantino’s shoes are so tragic”.
A second wrote: “Fifa, you need to get rid of Infantino purely for wearing white trainers with a suit”.
A third commented: “Gianni Infantino always looks like a lad in a suit whose ‘good shoes’ are killing him so he wears his runners for watching the footie and getting his steps in”.
A fourth added: “Infantino: suit, tie and white trainers. Like wearing shoes in the swimming pool”.
A fifth tweeted: “White trainers with a massive logo on the tongue. Mmmm.”
Infantino has also received criticism for his plans for more winter World Cup tournaments.
Premier League chiefs have suggested that the idea could ruin two seasons of domestic football due to the required six-week mid-campaign break.
